Pacers injury update: Danny Granger to play against Cavaliers; George Hill still hurting

Brian Spurlock-US PRESSWIRE

The Indiana Pacers leading scorer will be on the floor Tuesday night in Cleveland for the first time this preseason.

The NBA season begins next week but the Indiana Pacers have yet to see their starting unit play together in the preseason.

That won't change on Tuesday when the Pacers travel to Cleveland to take on the Cavs, but they will add one more starter to the mix with forward Danny Granger expected to make his preseason debut, according to Mike Wells.

As you can see, the prognosis for George Hill joining his fellow starters in Cleveland doesn't look too good. Hill continues to deal with a bothersome hip pointer and a cautious training staff looking toward the regular season. While it would be nice for the starters to get some run together ASAP, the benefit of keeping the successful unit together is that they already know how to play together and play well.
